Based in: Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The XL vocal group Perpetuum Jazzile is currently the biggest Slovenian pop and jazz vocal ensemble. It has been established by the name of Gaudeamus in 1983, under the leadership of Marko Tiran. The repertoire offers an attractive selection of vocal jazz and pop, Brazilian bossa nova, gospel, close harmony style and funk and is mostly sung a cappella, yet sometimes also accompanied by remarkable jazz instrumentalists.

The listener is given an alluring combination of vocal jazz harmonies and extraordinary rhythms, and touches them with spectacular soloists, ease and glowing youth. The music of Perpetuum Jazzile, best presented on their latest album "Africa", inevitably fills the listener with vocal ecstasy. According to the Slovenian radio broadcaster Val 202 and magazine Stop, the album reached first place as the best-selling album in Slovenia in the first week after its release. The live version of the title song made an immense international breakthrough of the group in 2009 and has become the absolute record holder of all Slovenian clips ever being uploaded to the Internet.
